No it will not have the tensile strength required
You can get replacement strings in good sporting shops.The cheap ones are around 10 bucks per pack.Fishing line (mono filament) is useless as it will stretch over time.If you want to go cheap get some braided fishing line in the 80LBS range, below that the line will just be too thin for a racket.If you never done any repair on those strings you are better off buying a new racket or to have it fixed in a shop.
It will stretch but not go back so it will get all loose.
Copper wire is quite malleable and ductile - it will not hold significant tension for a useful time.
If you have no access to proper strings, try fishing line, kite lines or guitar strings instead - they are designed to take the tension.
